The SC & more n°271: Square
About one and a half week ago I stumbled upon a rather interesting blog. It's author, Isabelle Kessedjian is organising a weekly crochet challenge. There is a theme, and you have the week to invent and create something corresponding to that theme. You are not supposed to follow a pre-existing pattern but other than that you are pretty free to do whatever you like!
This is my very first participation and I am quite excited about it. The theme of the week is: "square".
It took me a little while to think about it, then I decided to make dish-/wash-cloths.
Crochet size: 4mm
Yarn: Cotton in yellow and peach
Size: about 20x20cm
Stitches used (UK): Chain, Slip Stitch, Double Crochet, Treble Crochet
I first chained about 35 stitches + 3 for my 1st treble.
Then 3 rows of Tr, 4 rows of Dc, 6 rows of Tr, 4 rows of Dc, 6 rows of Tr, 4 rows of Dc and 3 rows of Tr.
Afterwards I Dc-ed all around as basis for my edge.
Dc all around.
Then Shell edging (instructions there). I won't repeat the instructions, they are quite clear on that blog. I will also try to practice the other types of edging in the near future :)
This time it is really square, sorry Isabelle for the delay!
I still need to steam-block them, they are also a little clumsy. I did not pay enough attention (was watching "Frozen" with my little ones!) and made some counting mistakes. It does not really matter though, I am looking forward to using them.
Have a look at the other participations now and wait for my next posts, I am preparing several right now!
